First trailer for Magic Mike's Last Dance has just dropped

The trailer for Magic Mike's Last Dance has arrived and it's a must-watch

Hold onto your hats because the final trailer for the hotly anticipated final Magic Mike film has dropped and you're going to want to see this.

Watch the trailer below:

Channing Tatum is back as Mike Lane one last time, alongside the boys and Salma Hayek who plays Mike’s love interest.

While only a few details were spilled before the trailer’s release, we do know that Steven Soderbergh is returning as director after helming the first film in 2012 which launched the Magic Mike franchise.

Magic Mike’s Last Dance will follow Magic Mike XXL which made a huge splash in cinemas back in 2015.

To the surprise of no one – because let's face it, who doesn't want to see Channing Tatum perform to Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’? – both films became major hits, grossing $285.6M (£240.8M) at the global box office collectively.

Magic Mike exploring what it’s really like to be a male stripper, as a leading dancer at the fictional club Xquisite teaches an up-and-coming performer how to be the best performer, partygoer and money-maker.

The OG film also starred Alex Pettyfer as Mike’s protégé alongside Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash as the strippers plus Cody Corn as Mike’s love interest Brooke and Olivia Munn as Joanna, Mike’s on-again, off-again lover.

It was loosely based on the experiences of the 21 Jump Street star who worked as a stripper in Tampa, Florida when he was 18 years old. Tatum managed to turn his teenage stint as an entertainer into a goldmine by launching the hugely successful stage show, Magic Mike Live which launched in Las Vegas before expanding to Australia, Berlin and London.

The 2015 sequel, Magic Mike XXL, is set three years after Mike left the stripper life behind while still at the top of his game. Before saying farewell to this part of his life, he headed down to Myrtle Beach with some of his stripper pals for one last performance, but as we now this, that certainly wasn’t his last hurrah on stage.

Most of the original cast returned for the sequel and they were joined by some new additions, including Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Strahan.

As fans across the world wait impatiently to see Channing gyrate on stage one last time as Mike, it turns out the former model had to be persuaded to return to the world of Magic Mike one last time.

It was only after watching the Magic Mike Live show in Berlin that writer Reid Carolin and director Steven Soderbergh managed to get Channing on board.

“In my opinion, we had chewed up all the meat on the bone, story-wise. Pun intended, I guess,” he told IndieWire. “They're essentially movies about guys made for women. We didn't plan on making a second one.

Channing changed his tune by the time Magic Mike’s Last Dance was announced in November last year. In a statement, the actor gushed: "There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of Magic Mike with Steven, Greg, Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max. The stripperverse will never be the same."

Magic Mike’s Last Dance will be released in cinemas on 10 February 2023.
